the greatest music festival in america for three days here in golden gate park. >> we work with them a lot to prevent and not have any problems. and what we have done with them is have roads built and have pieces under whatever equipment is parked. they do all of that. and then when it gets removed, they have very little damage. >> for me as a gardener and having to stay here and work after they leave, i am more than happy when i see their greening team come through and green everything up. >> we have given them pieces that they can use, and pieces that they can't use. so we are allowing them, again, because we have irrigation in the ground so they can use, and if they put up a tent they can stake a tent in some places, they can't stake a tent in other places. so we are protecting the golden gate park asset. >> so what is really special about the partnership is not just the incredible music, that about 70,000 of our closest friends are listening to right now, but for the respect that everybody has for this park and the work that we do with the outside land music promoters to make sure that
cliff today, but gun violence is another area in america where it seems we can't have a discussion without delusional claims of overreach and taking away hunting rifles. congress won't even allow statistics on gun violence to be gathered, and we certainly have made no progress towards closing the gun show loophole. i come to the floor with a small array of hope. with nearly half of all military sue sides are committed with privately owned weapons, the pentagon and congress are moving towards establishing policies to separate at-risk service members from personal private weapons. congress is poised to enact legislation to end a prohibition about the military collecting information about firearms kept at home. these are simple commonsense steps for an armed services where more military personnel take their own life than who die in battle. perhaps if we can take these reasonable steps to protect our servicemen and their families, perhaps we can have the courage to treat the epidemic of gun violence with the same thoughtful small steps when it comes to protecting the rest of our famili
in america. >> that's inexcusable. i don't disagree with that. >> it is inexcusable. i just wonder about the double standard. tearing down tents, punching people. really, i don't understand. mike, can you explain this stuff for me? i believe i've said it on the show time and time again, unions, after world war ii, helped create strong, vibrant middle class. >> yeah. >> we talked to steve rattner about jobs coming back to america at 14, 15, $16 an hour. we don't celebrate that. i'm glad they're here instead of china, but heck. if we had an economy that would support $30-an-hour jobs, i'd be for that. better than a ceo. you know, destroying a company and then getting a $200 million payout. but that said, what is wrong with a state allowing an american to work where he or she wants to work without having to be compelled to pay union dues? >> well, this state, michigan, was such a part of the core of unionism in this country, the foundation of the united automobile workers which at one point had over 1 million workers in its enrollment is now down to roughly maybe 350,000 workers. the united
in the entire united states of america. [ applause ] >> we were also just named as a finalist to host this cool international parks conference in 2015 in which we are going to be welcoming cities from all over the country to learn how we do it here in san francisco. and then, just last month, and a big thank you to all of you, san francisco voters approved proposition b. the cleanest safe neighborhood parks fund which allows us to renovate and juvinate your parks. 83 years ago, uncle john mcclarin and if you go in the gm office you can see a picture of him. started the tradition of lighting this mile-long stretch of trees started and ending here in front of the lodge where he lived for a number of years. so this, this is san francisco official holiday tree right behind us, uncle john's tree. it is a cyrus that is more than 100 years old closer to 130 years old and tonight it sports over 550 christmas holiday lights. >> so i really want to give a big shout out to the rec and parks staff that has continued the tradition and i want to thank all of them and single out a few, bob pelosio who organiz
action. viagra. talk to your doctor. see if america's most prescribed ed treatment is right for you. >>> we are a government of laws, not of men. those are the words of associate justice to the supreme court, antonin scalia. scalia said that and a whole lot more during a headline grabbing appearance at princeton university that included a q&a session with students. it was then scalia was asked about his past writings on gay rights, including a 2003 case, lawrence versus texas which likened sodomy to among other incomparables, bestiality and incest. in that high case the court ruled that states can not outlaw sodomy among consenting adults of the same sex. disagreeing, scalia wrote in part, texas' prohibition of sodomy is unsupported by a rational relation to a legislate state interest nor denies the equal protection of the laws. emphasis added. i dissent. scalia continues the texas statute seeks to further the belief of the citizens that certain forms of sexual behaviors are immoral and unacceptable. the same interest furthered by criminal laws against fornication, bigamy, adultery
and had 92 e-mails. some from people all over america. the story was picked up by the associated press. i had an e-mail from someone in arizona, alaska, everywhere in the country. on campus though, i have received such supportive comments. it's been really helpful to me. it was a very courageous thing. it took a lot of courage on my part. it's something i was really nervous about doing. something i thought that maybe i wouldn't do. and it's also important to point out that i don't understand why conservatives like scalia don't support gay marriage because i think gay marriage and gay rights as a whole are really consistent with conservative values. conservatives believe in promoting marriage as the bedrock of our society. if we want to pro mote marriage, we should hay low more people to enter it, more people who are committed to each other, who want to make sacrifices to each other. more people who are willing to, you know, spend their lives in these committed relationships. that is a conservative principle. and ultimately i think that that in itself is consistent with conservative values
